clashes at the consulate in benghazi, libya. one u.s. official is believed to have been killed. maybe one wounded. 6:30 p.m. the cairo embassy tweets this morning's condemnation issued before the protest began still stands. as does our condemnation of the breach. 10:09 p.m. romney campaign releases a statement from governor romney on libya and egypt, embargoed until midnight. expressing outrage at the attacks and saying, "it's disgraceful that the obama administration first response was not to condemn attacks but sympathize with those who wage the attacks." 10:10:00 p.m., the obama administration disavows the cairo embassy statement release some 16 hours earlier in the day. telling politico that the statement, "was not cleared by washington" and does not reflect the views of the united states government. 10:25 p.m. the romney campaign lifts the embargo. sometime after midnight, the original cairo embassy statement and subsequent tweets are removed from the website and the twitter account. 12:09 a.m., obama campaign spokesman e-mails reporters saying the campaign is shocked that governor r
in benghazi. first, though, what could be a campaign blockbuster. what mitt romney said to big money donors about president obama voters when he didn't think the cameras were rolling. a camera rolling and "mother jones" magazine got the video. >> there are 47% of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. all right, there are 47% of them who are with him, who are depend enon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has to take care of them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, you name it. that's an entitlement. he starts off with a huge number. these are people who pay no income tax. >> we got these clips from "mother jones" magazine. the romney campaign has not denied the substance of what's in the tapes. in the tape you hear romney saying my job is to not worry about those people, he'd never convince them. he also joked he'd have a better shot if his father, george romney, had been mexican. the question now, does the playing of this tape hurt or help his chances? gop strategist ari fleischer and paul bega

of two weeks now. that is what happened in benghazi? why was the message coming out of the administration so muddled at best and misleading at worse? when did they know that it was a terrorist attack? why won't the president actually use the term terrorist attack? well, yesterday there was a major break through and one agency came out and took responsibility. >> in fact, it was james clapper's office, the director of national intelligent basically trying to take the onus off the white house by saying hey it was the intelligence community's fault and said, this quote: in the immediate aftermath there was information that led us to assess that the attack began spontaneously following protests earlier that day in cairo. we provided that initial assessment to the executive branch officials and members of congress who used that information to discuss the attack publicly and provide updates as they became available. through the our investigation we continued to emphasize that our information was preliminary and evolving. >> we were waiting for someone like james clapper or tom donilin to weigh
of national intelligence now says the attack in benghazi was deliberate and organized. some of those involved, he says, were linked to groups affiliated with or sympathetic to al qaeda. it's a big change from the administration's original claim. >> what happened in benghazi was, in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in cairo. >> reporter: now the republican chairman of the house homeland security committee says ambassador rice should step down. >> either she's intentionally misleading the american people and she should resign for that, or she's unqualified to be u.n. ambassador and she got the facts as wrong as she did and she should resign for that. >> reporter: but the white house's ambassador rice was simply offering the best information available at the time. pete williams, nbc washington. >>> prosecutors say before james holmes went on that deadly shooting rampage in a colorado movie theater, he had been barred from the university of colorado for threatening a professor. court documents are raising questions about why campus police did not rep
of u.n. ambassador susan rice because of her handling of the u.s. consulate attack in benghazi. u.s. intelligence is saying there is evidence that the attack was initially planned. initially, the administration had maintained they believed the attacks in libya were spontaneous reaction to the offensive video that rocked the middle east and beyond. could the direct sort of politicizing of the benghazi attack snowball into a full-blown october surprise for the president? what do you think? does the changing discourse about what happened in benghazi ultimately cause harm to the president? >> the thing about an october surprise is it usually has to reinforce some fundamental weakness or arguments from taking place with the president. if you think about the bin laden tape at the end of the 2004 campaign with bush and kerry, bush had been running on this fear and strength and all these issues getting the country animated on this. by the time the surprise happened, it reinforced what the people already believed. the thing that the president and this is why the bin laden assassination sor
. the fact is, this was probably from an al qaeda affiliated or al qaeda organization in benghazi that carried out a very well orchestrated attack. it results in the tragedy that took the lives of four brave americans. again, it is incredible to blame the video. the video is not to blame. the people that are pushing the video, the people that are using the video as a way of inflaming passions throughout the middle east. how many more videos are this going to be? finally, what about freedom of speech? we still believe that people, as long as they do not commit a crime, are allowed to have freedom of speech. we should stand up for that. >>neil: now it has spread to the other countries and whether it is the video or the follow-up on what happened in libya, it almost gives the appearance of the whole middle east being on fire. what do you think of the way things stand going into what are half a dozen planned demonstrations throughout the middle east this weekend? >>guest: osama bin laden said this is a strong horse and a weak horse. people like the strong horse. we have sent the emerg
what happened in benghazi, libya was a terrorist attack and pledged to bring those who murdered ambassador chris stevens and the three others to justice. the secretary of state saying what happened in libya was a terrorist attack and will not rest until we've tracked down and brought to justice the terrorists who murdered four americans. we'll have much more on the secretary of state as well as republicans who are not satisfied with the investigation thus far from the administration and from the state department. at least 15 people are dead in pakistan as a new wave of protests over the anti-islam film "innocence of muslim" turned violent. thousands of muslims protested in at least half a dozen countries. nbc is live in kabul, afghanistan. many thought we would see protests over the french cartoon released, but these are still again over this movie or film made in the united states. >> reporter: hi there, tamron. the protests were actually about both. the majority was pointed at that film. not enough information has gone out to many countries about those cartoons published in fr
. >> what happened in benghazi was, in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just tran spispired hours befor cairo. almost a copycat of the demonstrations against our facility in cairo which were prompted, of course, by the video. >> most people don't bring rocket propelled grenades and heavy weapons to a demonstration. that was an act of terror. and for anyone to disagree with that fundamental fact, i think, is really ignoring the facts. >> libya's president says foreign extremists did plan the attack. but in egypt, officials say some protesters there actually got paid to participate. of course, events overseas have already changed the dialogue when it comes to the election here at home. until now, mitt romney's message has centered on the economy. with obama leading in the polls, republicans have seized on the embassy crisis to attack the president's leadership. >> all of us are watching events closely. but we know who america is dealing with in these attacks. they are extremists who operate by violence and intimidation. and the least equivocation or mixed signal only
happened in benghazi. we didn't know how many were dead. but it seems like america agrees with me because the polling came out and niece a dead heat in -- he's in a dead heat in the gallup poll. >> i think you're right. that's the other side of the equation that when money drains, power drains. when you're broke, you lose control of your destiny. and the guys lighten up and running up the al-qaeda flag on burning u.s. embassy compound understand they have nothing to fear. this guy, mitt romney from the coverage in american newspapers, you would think he was already president, that he's somehow responsible for this and responsible for that. no, the guy is responsible is the fellow sitting in the white house. he's the president. american embassies are ablaze. nearly 50 million people on food stamps. this is the obama track record. that's what he hopes to be reelected on. >> brian: i think the american people saw it was out of proportion. i'm curious to see what they think this tape coming out. congratulations on your book. i'll talk to you on the radio. you can take your jacket and tie off
